Prince Charles was said to have been too late in courting Camilla, according to some royal experts. The news of Camilla marrying Andrew Parker Bowles resulted in the Prince frustratingly writing back to her in an attempt to stop the wedding. Channel 5’s documentary ‘Behind the royals’ saw royal experts reflect key moments in Prince Charles’ life.
Royal commentator Richard Kay said: “I think Andrew Parker Bowles was forced into the proposal.
“This is because he was very aware Camilla was seeing Prince Charles.
“I think he generally feared that if he didn’t pull his finger out and make an honest woman of Camilla, he might actually lose her.
“He wanted Camilla to be the mother of his children, he could see a future with her.”
